a simple poem about the "path" to saner eating

Though this ends with going down another street, I think it can still apply to people here who keep giving up on No S to try better, faster, diets that end up being unsustainable. The "other street" doesn't have to mean another diet, but another way of approaching this task, a way of seeing how to feed oneself adequately for long term vitality and satisfaction, and not the street with the "hole" of impatience or clinging to too much low nutrition food that ends up not really satisfying.

Even if it does mean using another "diet," I think the experience here can help one see that she has to do surrender to the program but in a calm, collected way not a panicked one, in a way that recognizes that she has chosen her best option for healing and the long term.
